comment What is the right age to put the toddler to (pre-)school?
School's in my country (US) have defined ages where schools accept students, either for pre-school or limits for nursery school. Are these not guiodelines for you?

comment How to go about regaining the trust of my child?
It depends, my parents divorce was anything but civil and my brother was sort of in my Dad's sphere of influence and my brother and mother NEVER had a good relationship. Keeping the communication lines open is the best way, but it all depends on how your ex-wife wants you out of the picture. Court is not always an attractive option, but in some ways showing you are fighting to have more time with your daughter is one way to show you care. It all depends on how you spin it.

comment How do I stop yawning so much when I'm reading bedtime stories to my kids?
This would be my suggestion, I have the same thing happen with me when I read to my eldest. I think this is the issue since with my younger I read to him from the rocking chair and my eldest likes me lying in bed next to him.

As an aside, it may be that legal recourse is going to be necessary at some point, otherwise you will be dealing with a limited access window that in the long term may not help you.

comment How to go about regaining the trust of my child?
Try to do things she REALLY enjoys then, you need to bring her to a place that she is comfortable and will open up. If your time is limited then try to make it a place you can talk and she will be open to what you say. Sometimes words can help and tell her you can in any way and in as many ways as you can. Basically you have to reestablish a relationship that is actively being destroyed, and when my parents divorce got bitter sometimes all I wanted was a few kind words or an attempt from the other.

comment Are deli cut meats bad for infants?
As long as the meats you give have little preservatives and salt then it shouldn't be doing "bad". Like most things as long as you have a balanced diet and are careful in what the meal contains then you should be ok.

comment How do you convince your son to poop in the toilet?
Yes but sadly this is a battle I won't win...so I just do it when my wife is not home or sneak in when she is not looking. Generally that works unless my oldest is in a mood then he tattles on me...

comment How do you convince your son to poop in the toilet?
This would not work in my house, my wife is very anti-reading in the bathroom. I am not sure if it's an Asian or Taiwan or family thing but she yells at me if I bring something to read in there. Even pointing out in the bookstore the numerous bathroom readers hasn't worked.

comment How do I get an easily distracted 5 year old to eat more?
Hungry kids eat more and eat their meal, at least in my experience, you can give better and more rounded nutrition in a meal than in a snack.

comment How do I get an easily distracted 5 year old to eat more?
Yes, no more meal and snack or not depends on time and activity. Generally he gets nothing more until the next meal, although we do give him drinks (like Yogurt Smoothies or Sidekicks) so he doesn't miss nutrition. The goal is to get him to recognize what mealtime is and is not.

comment How can we improve a trilingual toddler's basic language development?
My own experience says no, all the multilingual kids I have seen speak later than single language kids I know.
